Ride your bike to the Solano Stroll and enjoy free valet parking at two locations on Solano Avenue, Wells Fargo Bank on upper Solano (parking by East Bay Bicycle Coalition), and by the pumpkin patch on lower Solano Avenue (Parking by coalition partners Albany Strollers & Rollers). Then, wander and explore 26 blocks of free fun! Volunteer to do valet bike parking with EBBC here
The fun begins at 10 am with the opening of Solano Avenue businesses and Stroll booths and the kick-off is the theme parade with about 100 groups.
After the parade, you can visit one of 75 entertainers, 50 food booths, 150 juried arts and crafters, games, wacky art cars, and almost 200 community non-profit and government organizations, not to mention the unique and popular professional services, restaurants, and shops already here on Solano Avenue.
You will hear the best in local music, dance and other performances and absolutely stunning costumes from all over the globe!
This is a family event! We feature a special area set aside just for kids that offer giant slides, carnival games, clowns, jugglers, stilt walkers, face painters, magicians, and maybe even wizards and elves – come and see for yourselves…
Stop by the “Green Zone” on the east end of Solano Avenue where you can find tips about simple changes you can make at your home or business to reduce global warming, displays of green technology – such as solar panels, tank-less water heaters and current composting techniques, and environmental experts ready to answer your questions about what you can do to check climate change.solanostolllogo.jpg
